Pardon the nosiness, but how old were you?


Probably about 12 or 13.

That might be a pretty deeprooted desire, especially for spacebot.

Re: Quicktakes

This seems appropriate for my gym rant. When I go to the gym, people who don't rack weights really frustrate me. I mean sure for me it's only 135 lbs, but someone else might be lucky to be able to lift 1/3 of that (I used to be one). Also related is returning gym equipment where you found it. I shou...

Re: Disney Princess Avengers

Just an aside, I'd watch a Disney Princess heist film. I think in many ways that plays better to their strengths without having to radically rewrite their characters: subterfuge, strategic planning, observation, charisma, and execution are all necessary to bring a successful heist about. Mastermind...

Hijack ahead: I'm gonna be a grouch and just state for the record that I am annoyed by the whole idea of Disney Princesses. This may have been recently exacerbated by my kid watching a dumb Tinkerbell movie where there was dialog that goes along the lines of: Girl: "Oh, I thought the seasons w...

Re: Have you performed on a stage?

Yes. When I was in college, I did some folk dancing for some shows that celebrated Filipino American culture. It was fun despite all the times I had performance anxiety (which were for all shows). I even danced in a loin cloth in my first show because that was the Freshman men's rite of passage danc...

Would it be like Kingdom Hearts, where beloved Disney characters and Square-Enix characters coexist in a single universe?

Disney Princess Avengers

So apparently a script is being shopped around Hollywood, described as an Avengers-style movie but for fairy tale princesses. http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/828171-princesses-movie-being-shopped-as-avengers-for-fairy-tales So of course I got to thinking, what if Disney got a hold of it and de...

Re: What monster should my tabletop characters fight?

As a D&D player, I am now imagining a tarrasque in pants. In my current game, my players are racing to keep Chernabog from rising. A powerful hellspawn might be quite fitting for Buffy. I kind of also like the idea of body snatchers for a one-shot. Especially if you infect a player and inject so...

Re: Sexual harassment in the workplace, re: commentary on Fox News's recent turnover

Tbh, unless victims come forward all at once, I don't see how such leadership (who doesn't see harassment as a problem) will change. And unfortunately, it requires people to experience that first before change in such a culture can be made to prevent other victims. I really don't see an established ...

Re: "Thor: Ragnarok" and "The Last Jedi Trailers"

I didn't like the Led Zeppelin score. They're just replicating what they did with Guardians of the Galaxy by using the old school music. Zeppelin is supposed to be counter-culture. The very industries that used to hate them are now casually using them in movie trailers? Screw that. Led Zeppelin has...

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

Beauty & The Beast (2017) - The acting and singing are serviceable, but that's about it. The movie is an almost beat for beat remake of the original. Very few changes are made, and out of the ones that are, most of them aren't explored enough or they don't make sense. Also, the original did a mu...

Get Out - It's a satire of the black experience in the form of the suspense/thriller genre. Anyone with an ounce of wit wouldn't take the ending literally and understand it's more like mocking appropriation of black culture by white people. :3houses:.5 It's still pretty good, just doesnt feel like ...

People watching because most parties that are boring are the ones where everyone but me know each other. They've usually already formed cliques and I'm left feeling blocked out from any form of conversation.
